On an allegation that threats were leveled against two persons who testified against three former member of the LTTE murdering the security forces members who were captured as prisoners of war, the TID has commenced an inquiry and that is the reason for the cases being transferred to other courts, a southern media said.
It had been said during the inquiries that when the security forces were nearing the Victor 4 camp, on the orders of Pottu amman, the suspects had shot 18 Army men and 8 Navy men and burned their bodies.
On the basis of the testimonies of two persons said to have helped to gather firewood to burn the bodies, Senkannan alias Rasathurai Thiruvarul, Mathiyalakan Suluxsan and Ganesan Tharsan were arrested and charged with plotting, aiding and abetting the murders under PTA.
The TPPs had rejected all charges against them and judge had postponed the case to 27th of this month and had ordered the accused and the witnesses be present on that date.
Earlier it was attempted to transfer the case from Vavuniya court. The TPPs went into a fasting protest and consequently the judge dated for the case to be called min Vavuniya court.
In this context, It is now alleged that threats have been leveled against the above witnesses and an attempt is made again to transfer case in the guise of a report from the inquiries regarding the threats, it is said.
